[image]Composite Map of Nadir BRDF-Adjusted Reflectance (NBAR) - Coastal Carolinas, March 5 - March 8, 2000 - Alan Strahler, Boston University and University College London
The MODIS BRDF/Albedo product includes several outputs of broad interest to the scientific community. One of these is nadir BRDF-adjusted reflectance (NBAR), which provides the surface reflectance from a viewpoint that is directly overhead. The MODIS instrument images across a wide swath, and thus often obtains views of the surface at strong angles. Because reflectance can vary with view angle, removal of these angular effects, which are described by the surface bidirectional reflectance distrib...

[image]Tropical Storm Alex (01L) off South Carolina - Jacques Descloitres, MODIS Rapid Response Team, NASA/GSFC
The MODIS instrument onboard NASA’s Aqua spacecraft captured this true-color image of Tropical Storm Alex on August 2, 2004, at 2:25 PM EDT. At the time this image was taken, Alex had maximum sustained winds near 60 mph with higher gusts and the Tropical Prediction Center in Miami was forecasting Alex to become a hurricane within 24 hours. Sensor: Aqua/MODIS. Data Start Date: 8/2/04.

[movies]Station Cameras Provide New View of Hurricane Earl
Cameras mounted on the International Space Station captured new views of Hurricane Earl late in the afternoon of Sept. 2 from an altitude of 218 statute miles as the storm churned due east of South Carolina heading north on a track that would skirt the eastern seaboard of the United States. Earl was packing winds of about 115 miles an hour at the time the video was acquired.

Ophelia was once again a hurricane when the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Terra satellite captured this image at 11:35 a.m. local time, on September 11, 2005. A Category 1 hurricane, Ophelia had sustained winds of 110 kilometers per hour (70 miles per hour).Ophelia formed off the Atlantic Coast of Florida. As it gathered strength and size, it brought winds and rain to parts of the Florida coast, though the storm’s center remained offshore...

The aftereffects of Tropical Storm Gabrielle are visible in this SeaWiFS image captured on September 17, 2001 off the coast of the southeastern United States. Near the coast the ocean is browner than normal because increased rainfall has washed a higher than usual sediment load into the sea. The brown water is most evident along the South Carolina and Georgia coasts. Farther offshore, wind-induced wave action has resuspended sediments from the underlying continental shelf turning the water a mil...
